Sir Percy Sykes: Hussain and his followers, the brave people who made their names inevitable forever


Sir Percy Sykes, British orientalist, said about Imam Hussain (a.s.), “Indeed the courage and bravery that these less number of people showed was at a level that in all these centuries, everyone who heard it, unconsciously, they admired it and their tongues praised it. These are a handful of brave and zealous people, who made their names inevitable forever.”

Brigadier-General Sir Percy Molesworth Sykes, KCIE, CB, CMG was a soldier, diplomat, and scholar with a considerable literary output. He wrote historical, geographical, and biographical works, as well as describing his travels in Persia.
